The $315-million, 400,000-sq-ft Tom and Billie Long Patient Care Tower has six stories and an underground loading dock and central utility plant. The tower adds 242 patient beds, 230 of them private, to the existing medical center.

The building is a steel-braced frame with concrete slab over metal deck with exterior finishes that include curtain wall; storefront and punched windows; and precast, stone, metal and plaster systems. The entry sequence opens into a two-story lobby featuring a three-story, central circular rotunda filled with daylight from an open atrium.
